The Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe

'Truly a princely house, a wondrous gift...'

By the Most Rev. John B. Brungardt
Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Dodge City

I remember when I first stepped foot in our Cathedral as a bishop-elect a year ago.  
Magnificent.  Massive.  Holy.
King Solomon, thanking God for his new temple, said, “I have truly built you a princely house and dwelling, where you may abide forever” (2 Chronicles 6:2).  The Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe of the Catholic Diocese of Dodge City is truly a princely house, a wondrous gift from God to the Catholic people of southwest Kansas.  As I said at my first introduction to you, my new flock: “With trust in God, I hope to be a good shepherd to the people of southwest Kansas, from Odin to Elkhart, from Tribune to Kiowa.  I was raised on a farm near Abilene, and I look forward to serving those in the farm and ranch lands, the towns and cities of the Dodge City diocese.”  What a blessing to serve you in our 48 parishes.  What a blessing we have in the mother church of our diocese, our beautiful Cathedral. We will celebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving on February 12 at 3 p.m. in the Cathedral commemorating the retirement of the debt, the “mortgage burning” of the Cathedral building.  As I speak to other bishops across the country, they ask me how my first year has been as a new bishop.  As the conversation turns to the cathedral, and I tell them it is was “paid off” in less than 10 years, they look at me in disbelief!  What a sacrificial people we have in our diocese!  What generosity in stewardship!  The people of the diocese dreamed, planned, saved, donated, and built this extraordinary building to worship our Loving Lord, to provide a place of faith and the sacraments, a mother church, for themselves, their children, grandchildren, and beyond.  I thank you.  We thank our Trinitarian God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for this blessed gift to our diocese: Our Cathedral Church.

La Catedral ... realmente una casa, un maravilloso regalo

Me acuerdo cuando pisé por primera vez nuestra Catedral como obispo-electo el año pasado.  Magnifica.  Enorme.  El Rey Salomón, dándole gracias a Dios por su nuevo templo, dijo “Yo te he edificado una Casa, un lugar donde habites para siempre” (2 Crónicas 6:2).  La Catedral de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe de la Diócesis Católica de Dodge City es realmente una casa, un maravilloso regalo de Dios para el pueblo Católico del suroeste de Kansas.  Como les dije en mi primera presentación a ustedes, mi nuevo rebaño: “Con confianza en Dios, espero ser un buen pastor para el pueblo del suroeste de Kansas, desde Odin asta Elkhart, desde Tribune asta Kiowa.  Fui criado en una granja cerca de Abilene, me entusiasma poder servir aquellos en las granjas y en las tierras de cultivo, los pueblos y ciudades de la diócesis de Dodge City.”  Que bendición servirles a ustedes en nuestras 48 parroquias.  Que bendición tenemos en la iglesia madre de nuestra diócesis, la hermosa Catedral.
Vamos a celebrar una Misa de Acción de Gracias el 12 de febrero a las 3:00 p.m. en la Catedral conmemorando el retiro de la deuda, la “quemadura de la hipoteca” de la Catedral.  Conforme he hablado con otros obispos a través del país, me preguntan como ha sido mi primer año como nuevo obispo.  Conforme la conversación gira hacia la catedral, les digo que se acabó de pagar en menos de diez años, ¡me ven como si no lo creyeran!  ¡Que gente tan sacrificada tenemos en nuestra diócesis!  ¡Que generosidad en el compartir!  Le gente de la diócesis soñó, planeo, ahorro, dono, y construyó este edifico tan extraordinario para adorar a nuestro Amoroso Dios, para proveer un lugar de fe, una iglesia madre, para ellos, para sus hijos, para sus nietos, y mas allá.  Les doy gracias.  Le damos gracias a nuestro Trinitario Dios, Padre, Hijo, y Espíritu Santo por esté bendito regalo para nuestra diócesis: Nuestra Catedral.
